From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-6-- The promise of an easy-to-read, alphabetically arranged, one-volume encyclopedia for the elementary grades is exciting but difficult to deliver. This attempt, actually a revised edition of The Doubleday Children's Encyclopedia (1990), emphasizes topics of interest to children, and the result is a curious compilation of facts. The entry on the American Revolutionary War has four brief paragraphs, about the same space reserved for "Football." Surprisingly, "Pollution" receives less coverage than "Yeast." Hernando Cortes is awarded an entry, while Francisco Pizarro is not. Clear, full-color photos; detailed, appealing drawings; and sharply drawn though diminuitive maps are plentiful. Yet the quality of the illustrations is uneven. For example, the portraits of the presidents of the United States are notably unattractive. Although The Random House Children's Encyclopedia (1991) has fewer entries, the consistency of its format makes it a better choice for home and school libraries.
